We've been waiting patiently for all the signals that Eli was ready to try food. You know the ones: able to sit up briefly, teeth (although he only has one that is just poking through) and grabbing at every food he sees. I think at this point he would take food out of my mouth if he could!
Tonight we decided it was time. Isaac had his first food, peas, when he was 5 months, 10 days old (I know, precise right?). Eli is 5 months, 13 days old and we gave him avocado, which was one of Isaac's favorites as a baby. He ate every bite we gave him and then insisted we give him the spoon. I think he thoroughly enjoyed himself!
